Junior Ranger – Senior Friendly Programs
Since retiring in 2013 I have begun participating in the Junior Ranger, and in some parks the Senior Ranger programs, that are offered at many of the National Park Sites (NPS). Over the years I have visited 389 NPS sites: camping, hiking, and sometimes just driving through.
Now that I can spend more time when visiting I am taking time to complete the Senior or Junior Ranger programs. Currently there are approximately 15 sites that offer a Senior Ranger program. Most sites allow adults to complete their Junior Ranger programs. This blog will feature my experiences completing the different programs as an adult. Families may find this information helpful, but I will be focusing on the adult experience.
I have been able to complete a couple of programs with my grandchildren, a great way to share the park experience. So, get out to the many National Park sites our country has set aside and ENJOY!
